Webinar Presentation:10 New Possibilities with Mobile Learning

by Gary Woodill on January 30, 2009

When mobile learning first arrived on the scene about 10 years ago, it was thought to be like e-learning except on a smaller screen. That is, educational material was packaged as courses, and tests were given on mobile phones. 10 years later, there are many new developments in mobile learning, some of which have the potential of being highly disruptive of how teaching and learning has traditionally been carried out. Here areĀ 10 new possibilities for mobile learning::

1. Micro-blogging and social media on mobile devices
2. Data Collection and Information Retrieval
3. Augmented Reality
4. Mobile Gaming and Virtual Worlds
5. Contextual learning and personalization
6. Rich media production and playback
7. Performance support and coaching
8. Multimodal input
9. Aggregated inputs
10. Self-organized collective behavior

The audience can comment and ask questions, and are encouraged to use Twitter to communicate their thoughts on the webinar with the presenters and each other, as it happens. The webinar is based on three research reports on mobile learning that I wrote in 2008.
